    The first 10 games of the Washington County Commanderettes’ season haven’t gone exactly to head coach Bernard Smalley plans, but there are signs of improvement as the team recovers during the winter break.

    In their second district contest of the season, the 2-8 Washington County Commanders hosted the 7-4 Bardstown Tigers Tuesday night. Any momentum Washington County may have had coming off a 2-2 performance in the Marion County Christmas Tournament was long gone as the Tigers defeated the Commanders 76-53 to improve to 2-0 in district play while WC falls to 0-2 in district, 2-9 overall.

  • Patriots fall at Cumberland 73-55

    SCC Sports Information

    J.T. Burton had a built-in excuse for the way his team started Monday’s game at Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tenn. The Patriots had not played a game in 17 days, and it showed in their lethargic start en route to a 73-55 loss to the #21 Bulldogs.

    But Burton, whose team fell to 2-13, wouldn’t use the layoff as a factor in the loss. “No, we just didn’t play defense like we need to in order to win games,” he said. “We can’t let teams come out and shoot 57 percent and expect to win.”

    The St. Dominic Knights traveled to Bardstown Saturday afternoon to face off against Elizabethtown. It was a tough game for the Knights as E-Town got off to an 8-0 lead to finish the first quarter and St. D was down 21-2 at the half.

    The E-Town offense was too much for the Knights as they hit several three-pointers and pulled away in the third quarter to take a 35-8 lead in the final six minutes.

    If Washington County head basketball coach Paul Bodenhamer had a Commander victory on his Christmas wish list, he had to wait an extra day before Santa delivered. WC entered tourney play on Dec. 26 with an 0-6 record and a Commander win was surely on more than one wish list during the holidays.

    It seems Bodenhamer and the boys were good during the year as they won two out of four during the KFC/Taco Bell Holiday Classic at Marion County High School over the weekend.

    From reliever to starter

    As we close the book on 2008, it's a good time to look back at all that has happened in Washington County sports during the past 366 days. But since I have only been here at The Springfield Sun for the past 205 days, my reflections will be somewhat limited.

    Following their first victory of the season against Bethlehem on Dec. 19, the Washington County Commanderettes basketball team traveled to Horse Cave to participate in the Lady Colonel Christmas Tournament at Caverna High School.

    Wii will rock you

    I bought my girlfriend Cindy a Nintendo Wii for Christmas along with the Wii Fit add-on package. Shhh, don't tell her, it's a surprise! She really wanted to get these, so I figured it would be a great excuse to buy a video game system. Afterall, I can justify it by saying it's meant to get us in better shape.
